On Monday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins broke out of a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 win over their red-hot rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers. The victory gave the team a three-point lead over the Carolina Hurricanes for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. During the four-game skid, Pittsburgh was outscored 15-8 and outshot 141-116. On the season, they’re allowing 33.3 shots on goal per game, fourth-highest in the NHL. Despite the slump-busting win, it’s obvious the Penguins aren’t fully past their struggles. The Flyers outshot them 51-28, including a ridiculous 28-8 during the second period. Pittsburgh also registered a negative-17 Corsi as a team. If things don’t change quickly, the Penguins may dig themselves too deep of a hole to crawl out of. Playoff Implications of the Upcoming Schedule Including Monday’s game against the Flyers, five of the Penguins’ final eight games in February are against Metropolitan opponents. The other three...

For the last few seasons, the months of February and March have acted like a revolving door for the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. Between injuries and trades, the stretch run portion of the season always brings new faces, new numbers and new looks to the Penguins' dynamic. Up to this point, the 2018-19 season hasn’t been much to write home about. The Penguins are barely holding on to the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 63 points, and the evidence as to why is apparent in the team’s lack of consistency from game to game, or even period to period. Despite the team’s problems, four fresh faces are stepping up to help the Penguins retain the longest active postseason appearance streak in the NHL by adding a 13th consecutive playoff run to the list. Jared McCann Jared McCann has hardly had time to catch his breath since becoming a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, but luckily he seems to work just fine under pressure. The trade that brought...

As the most important part of the season commences, the Pittsburgh Penguins are 2-4-1 since returning from the All-Star break. They are hanging to the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference for dear life, and while they have been plagued by injury this season, there has been one constant in the Penguins' struggles – Phil Kessel looks completely checked out. Earlier in the season, I wrote about how Kessel is the catalyst to the Penguins' offense and showed how his performance arguably affects the team more than superstars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but lately he has been detrimental both offensively and defensively. He is second on the team with 57 points, and boasts an impressive 700-plus game iron man streak, but there are an amplitude of reasons why it is time to move on from Kessel before the Feb. 25 trade deadline. Kessel's Offensive Stats Are Skewed For those who haven't watched him play much this season, people will look at Kessel's statistics and wonder...

There is no better trade deadline acquisition the Pittsburgh Penguins could make before the Feb. 25 trade deadline as they gear up for a playoff run than getting Evgeni Malkin, Justin Schultz and Zach Aston-Reese back from injury. Of course, this will lead to some lineup and roster shuffling to accommodate their returns, but it's a welcome sight for a team without a full complement of players since Oct. 13, the day Schultz suffered a fractured leg against the Montreal Canadiens. The roster has changed quite a bit even since Malkin went down 11 days ago, so how much will it change when all three players return? Forwards Right now, the Penguins are currently missing two key forwards in Malkin and Aston-Reese. Getting Malkin back is the more important one, but Aston-Reese is still a noticeable absence. Both are currently termed day-to-day by head coach Mike Sullivan, which could mean they'll return within the next week or so. When both are healthy, the Penguins...
